Croatian Jewish leader calls on government to ban Ustasha symbols

The president of the Coordinating Committee of Jewish Communities in Croatia, Dr. Ognjen Kraus, called on Prime Minister Andrej Plenković to finally make sure legislation was adopted to ban Ustasha symbols and insignia.

The government should ‘walk the talk’, Kraus told a conference addressing the issue of education about the Holocaust, held on the International Day Against Fascism and Antisemitism and the 82nd anniversary of the November’ pogroms.

On his Twitter profile, PM Plenković underscored that the International Day Against Fascism and Antisemitism is an occasion to strongly condemn criminal ideologies that have caused fear and human suffering. “Educating the young is key to building a society where there is no room for exclusiveness, intolerance and violence. #NeverAgain,” Plenković tweeted.
